Okay Gang here's the latest and greatest on the Ruckus. I just got off the phone with Parramores. They still have 7 Cabins left for March 19-22 and 13 cabins available for April 9-12. They aren't hosting a Fishing Tournament this year so I would guess it's the snowbirds still in town as the reason availability on cabins is low in March. They're gonna work with us again and knock 10% off the bill if you're a member of CCFan. The lady I talked too said she was gonna talk with the CEO to be sure and would let me know next Wednesday. I guess the decision on what day will be made then. I've already had some say they can't make it Easter weekend but others say it works better for them. Still on the fence on this one, I realize we can't make everyone happy on a date but want to be able to maximize the # of Folks in attendance.

Okay Gang … I'm pulling the trigger on a date for the 2020 SJRR. We're gonna do it Easter weekend April 9-12. Kinsey from Parramores called me yesterday and we discussed dates in March and April. I think with the potential of having 10+ families needing a Cabin based on last years attendance and those saying they want in on next year, we'd better do it in April. They are really making some changes for the better at this place by removing older " Cabins" and replacing them with real ones or renovating the other ones. They're also trying to add more cabins to the property so it sounds like they aren't going anywhere.
NOW, in order to get 10% off your RV slip, Cabin rental you have to call Parramores DIRECTLY and tell them you are a member of Correct Craft Fan and are making a reservation for the annual ski boat reunion. You can't get the discount if you use there online reservation system. Also, I was informed that Easter is a busy weekend for them so if your going, you'd better make a reservation ASAP. Their cancelation policy has changed for the better so if something comes up and can't go..... you'll get a full refund as long as you let them know 48 hrs before you're supposed to arrive. When you do call and reserve a spot you WILL be charged the full amount at the time you make it.

We 'll still do the CCFan favored Ocklawaha River Run to the Dora Canal on Fri and be able to explore the town and have lunch at one of the local watering holes. Being as it'll be April, I imagine the winds will be calmer and the water will be warmer so I anticipate more Skiing and Footin this time around on the way too Tavarres and on the way back.

Looking forward to this event as always and hanging with the regulars and once again. I'm hoping a "celebrity" of sorts will join us as he found out about this event when I talked with him at the Nautique Regatta and they asked me to let them know when it was as they wanted to attend if possible.

LET'S DO THIS!!!!!

My son and I are thinking about making the drive from Minnesota, flights are very expensive. Probably sans boat. We assume we can hitch some rides?

Dave, we'd love to have you join us. They do have a couple of tent sites available if that's the route you wanna go and they're right in the middle of the campground next to the shower/restroom and the rec hall. Yep, there is always plenty of boat space so that won't be a problem for you guys. Well except for Jerry's boat. He is usually looking for empty space for his crew as he makes the Brady Bunch look like amateurs. Be good to see ya man. Come on down!


Here's who we got so far.... 12 cabins left

Morfoot - Buzzards Roost   Thurs- Sun
NautiqueHunter - Squirrels Nest   Thurs- Sun

Did you try Allegiant Air which flys into Sanford? Very economic airline with good reviews and Sanford airport would super convenient for you.

Good tip. Found nothing to Sanford but if we extend Wednesday to TuesdayI prices drop to under $300 to Orlando. Maybe we could sneak in a nautique factory tour.

Don't forget to look into JAX.... Might be a cheaper flight and you won't have the toll road expense either like you will if you fly to MCO. Just a thought.

Hey Tim, I was looking for a camp ground map to reserve a cabin & I found this
    " CANCELLATION AND REFUND POLICY
•All reservations made on major holidays or event weeks are nonrefundable."
Still planning on being there though.

I've talked several times with the owner and since we are such a large group and providing them a lot of business I was told all they need was a 48 hr notice but I will double check to be sure. That being said.....

Parramores called me yesterday to let me know that folks are calling wanting cabins and RV slips for this weekend that aren't CCFans. So it's gonna fill up fast so DO NOT DILLY DALLY on making a reservation for The Ruckus or you may be left without a place to stay at Ruckus HQ. People plan and make reservations early these days so don't miss the Boat so put down the Christmas stocking and give them a call and make a reservation before it's too late. I'm gonna throw this up on the Classic CC FB group page so that we can take over the campground with LPSL machines instead of there normal Easter Residents. Make it Happen!!!!
